Spammers fined £440,000

News Jan 14, 2013

A welcome win for the anti-spam brigade

The men found guilty of running a company sending out millions of spam text messages have been fined nearly half a million pounds in action which is sure to force others to take note.

Christopher Niebel and Gary McNeish, owners of Tetrus Telecoms, were the recipients of the action by the Information Commissioner which is doing its best to stop spammers and blaggers from sending out those kinds of texts we’ve all received promoting compensation claims for personal injury.

This is the first time that the Information Commissioner has gone as far as this and he said: “The public have told us that they are distressed and annoyed by the constant bombardment of illegal texts and calls and we are currently cracking down on the companies responsible, using the full force of the law.”

More of this, please.
